Out the Window

Project Description:
In Out the Window, youth collaboratively write and produce videos and TV screen banners that explore aspects of their families, blocks, streets, and neighborhoods. These geo-coded messages are transmitted on TV screens on the 2200 LA Metro buses that travel throughout the city, transforming the buses into mobile learning labs that serve the 7 million Los Angelinos that travel these routes every week, many of whom represent a population sometimes not reached by the internet and new media. These multi-platform works will challenge and enable youths and riders to connect media, interpretations and place.
Award Amount:
$100,000 - Best in Class: Youth Partners (or co-producers)
